The Four Horsemen of the Arockalypse take their show to an isolated FOB in Northern Iraq.
Under the leadership of SFC Eric Cryer, 4HOTA has quickly become very popular throughout the United States Division - North here in Iraq. They cover many genre's of music from Pantera to Sublime and they do them all extremely well. 4HOTA recently packed up and headed off to FOB Bernstein to perform for the troops there, who have not had any type of MWR support for more than five months.
A far cry from the perceived Brass Quintet that these troops expected, 4HOTA brought everything they had to these Soldiers on an isolated FOB in Northern Iraq. "Who knows better what Joe's want to hear than four Joe's", said PFC Alan Bradley, lead singer for 4HOTA.
The other members of the team are:
SPC Avery Cody - Bass
SPC Steve Haaker - Drums
SPC Hector Munoz - Lead Guitar
SFC Eric Cryer - NCOIC
SGT Ralph Gaskin - Sound NCOIC
